Rogue Records America has announce the release of the self-titled full-length album from Sweden’s HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH. For fans of MESHUGGAH, VILDHJARTA and progressive death metal searching for another amazingly brutal act to latch on to, HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH is your band.

“Humanity’s Last Breath” is out now on both physical CD (limited-edition digipak) and as a digital download (digital format also includes the entire album as an instrumental version).

The song “Animal”, taken from “Humanity’s Last Breath”, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

Bludgeoning your speakers with 13 tracks that grind any brains you have left into a pulp, HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH once again sets the bar in the death metal genre, showing the progression of not only the band but the limits of what one can do with metal itself. Chugging riffs, thunderous drums, pounding bass and banshee-like vocals take the listener through a more groove-oriented sound than the band’s last release.

HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH was formed in 2009 by drummer Buster Odeholm and guitarist Kristoffer Nilsson. They previously released two EPs, “Reanimated By Hate” (2009) and “Structures Collapse” (2011).

HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH is:

Marcus Hultqvist – Vocals
Kristoffer Nilsson – Guitar
Stefan Bengtsson – Bass Guitar
Buster Odeholm – Drums

Scottish death/grind powerhouse MAN MUST DIE will will release its new album, “Peace Was Never An Option”, on October 28 in Europe and one day later in North America via Lifeforce Records. The CD features a guest appearance by Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, ex-SEPULTURA) on one song.

The track “On The Verge Of Collapse” can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

Comments the band: “This album is by far the angriest yet most diverse one we have done yet. It’s the next level for MAN MUST DIE. We couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out. It’s brutal beyond the word and yet more melodic and memorable than ever.

“With ‘Peace was Never An Option’, we really focused on the songwriting, which is really important in MAN MUST DIE‘s sound, [and] seems to be bypassed a lot in modern music.

“All the classic metal is all about the songs; this is what influences us, this is what we do.”

MAN MUST DIE are an extreme metal band hailing from Glasgow, Scotland. Formed in 2002 and originally born of the founding members’ desire to push their music to new levels of intensity and brutality, the band’s dedication to their craft has since manifested itself in a rich touring history, sharing stages with such acts as EXODUS, MACHINE HEAD and DECAPITATED.

MAN MUST DIE has released three full-length studio albums thus far: 2004’s “…Start Killing” (Retribute Records), “The Human Condition” (2007, Relapse Records) and “No Tolerance For Imperfection” (2009, Relapse Records). Their music manages to incorporate the heaviest elements of extreme metal whilst retaining an attuned sense of melody, confidently shifting from epic, uplifting passages to pure sickness. Augmented by a keen compositional flair and furious, socially aware vocals, MAN MUST DIE is a highly focused musical force.

MAN MUST DIE is:

Joe McGlynn – Vocals
Alan McFarland – Guitar
Dan Firth – Bass
James Burke – Drums

Lamb Of God: overcoming the odds?

Sometimes it is almost impossible to live up to the hype and expectation that surrounds certain gigs and tonight, unfortunately, Lamb Of God have the fates conspire against them, making their headline slot very much a case of “what if?”.

It certainly starts well enough, the anticipation of the band’s return to the UK after the trauma of the last year is sky high. When, through the lights and dry ice, steps Randy Blythe, the reaction from those in attendance is one of universal elation. Even the people here who aren’t familiar with the band’s material, and strangely enough there is a large proportion of curious bystanders present tonight, seem to have nothing but genuine goodwill for the man. As the opening to Desolation starts the set it seems that the band are keen to match the adulation with pure aggression and intensity. Unfortunately the sound doesn’t do LOG justice; the guitars are muddy, the vocals overpowering and it’s just plain too quiet.

It then goes from mildly annoying to potentially gig threatening as the front barriers collapse, ironically enough during Ruin. There is a monumental gap whilst the problem is sorted and unfortunately when the song restarts it has robbed the band of any momentum, the crowd have mellowed and, most surprisingly of all, Lamb Of God seem uncharacteristically sloppy.

It takes a good portion of the set before their game is raised back to anything near the level that you would expect from such an exceptional band, and, to be fair to them, when they sign off with Laid To Rest, Redneck and a brutal, scorching Black Label not many bands could touch them. Ultimately though, this is not the iconic moment that it promised to be. To coin a popular ad campaign; tonight, through no fault of their own, it’s good, but it’s not quite Lamb Of God.

Setlist

Desolation
Ghost Walking
Walk with Me in Hell
Set to Fail
Ruin
Now You’ve Got Something to Die For
11th Hour
The Undertow
Omerta
Contractor
Encore:
The Passing
In Your Words
Laid to Rest
Redneck
Black Label
